Undergraduate Research

Conducting undergraduate research provides an opportunity to

  • Solidify knowledge gained in advanced (3000 or 4000 level) economics courses
  • Gain hand-on experience in Economics
  • Improve one’s resume and application to graduate programs
  • Receive a strong recommendation letter from a faculty member

There are different ways students can get involved in the undergraduate research:

Here is a list with Funded Research Opportunities for Undergraduates. Most of these opportunities pay travel & most or all living expenses, plus stipends ranging from small to generous. 

All students interested in conducting an undergraduate research are strongly encouraged to attend a meeting offered each semester where they can learn more about developing a research question and selecting an advisor. Email Dr. Natalia Zhivan at for more information.
